About Religion

The stories we tell in our religions are some of the most powerful, dramatic tales in human history, and they make for compelling television. Although it's far from the most prevalent genre on TV, religious programming has no problem holding its own among the secular programming that dominates the daily TV schedule.

The practical side of religion has long had a place on TV, with ministers and preachers - Billy Graham is perhaps the most widely watched example - taking to the airwaves to reach followers far and wide. Although a series of scandals in the 1980s and 90s involving popular TV preachers Jim Bakker and Jimmy Swaggart tarnished the image of the televangelist, TV ministries continue to this day.

The historical basis of Biblical and other religious stories is a common subject of historical nonfiction series that attempt to uncover the factual history behind the stories of religious figures. Other nonfiction programs take an outsider's perspective, approaching religious stories and beliefs from the point of view of the scientific skeptic. Still others take a sociological approach, examining the way that religion has shaped cultures and the historical events that have changed the world.

Recently, historical dramas based on Judeo-Christian religious stories, such as the History Channel's "The Bible," have enjoyed tremendous popularity.
